Night Of The Vampire

Lyrics: Melton et al?
Music: Mickey Hart et al?

A song recorded by Mickey Hart and others as part of the Area Code 415 sessions in the early 1970s. I think it's "sung" by Barry Melton.

Doctor was waiting, it was forty below
Jumped in the saddle, horse blew away

He casts
Rampfield, Rampfield, my name is Rampfield
Master, master, more rats, more rats

You drive a stake in his heart
While he's lying in his coffin in the daytime
When he's been ... [fades]
